Grapevine has been categorized as one of the top 100 high schools in the United States of America by Newsweek magazine, and was named a 1999-2000 National Blue Ribbon School. Students come from Cross Timbers Middle School, other portions of Colleyville Middle School and portion of Grapevine Middle School. Although Grapevine High School is in Grapevine, only half of the student body lives in Grapevine. The other half lives in Colleyville.
Portions of some school districts extend into other counties; only high schools in Tarrant County should be listed here Aledo ISD, Burleson ISD, and Godley ISD serve sections of Tarrant County, but they operate no high schools in Tarrant County.
